A politically exposed person (PEP) is someone who has been entrusted with a prominent public function – such as politicians, judges, military personnel and their families and close associates. There is no reason why you should not deal with a PEP, but the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) warns that many PEPs are in positions that potentially can be abused for money laundering, corruption and bribery, and even terrorist financing. A quick Semaphore Intel PEP search tells you whether you may have issues with transactions.
Our Politically Exposed Persons (PEP) Database is based on publicly accessible data from official government websites, open-source databases, and manual research. It covers national and regional Politicians, Judges, Military Personnel, Family Members, and close associates.
